Bookmark and Share


More than 300 students in L.E.A Primary School Angwan Kwaso Tungan Maje, Abuja are to benefit from a block of classrooms built by the Institute of Human Virology Nigeria (IHVN) and JUMOROTA, a non-governmental organization.

These students include, 125 orphans and vulnerable children, who would no longer be taught under mango trees, and 205 indirect beneficiaries from communities like Angwan Kwasa, Angwan Jagaba and Angwan Gwabari.

IHVN Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) Lead, Mrs. Jummai Musa, said that the project is a collaborative effort between the Institute and the community through JUMOROTA. “The community was part of the decision to erect this structure and contributed to its success. It is a partnership that ensures that everyone benefits. The vulnerable children will attend school without any payment and the school now has a structure for all its students.”

imagesWhile commissioning the project, the Executive Secretary of Gwagwalada Area Council, Hajiya Sefiya Tukura appreciated IHVN for executing the project. “When we came for inspection and met the children under the cold, I wept. Whenever there is rain, the school would close because the weather would interrupt classes. This was a very sad condition for both the teachers and children,” she said. Hajiya Tukura gave assurance of the project’s sustainability.

The Headmaster of the school, Mr. Jibrin Abubakar expressed joy and gratitude for the timely intervention. He thanked IHVN and JUMOROTA for the three classrooms that will make learning conducive.

JOMUROTA Program Officer, Solomon Hange, said the project commenced in May 2018. “ We faced challenges but because of the great task ahead to touch the lives of these children, the challenges were tackled and now the lives of children can be impacted,” he said.
